Major Donors – Virginia Beach, VA
The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) is a multifaceted nonprofit organization that produces compelling and inspirational Christian content encouraging millions of people worldwide. We are seeking a director-level Major Donor fundraiser to expand and implement development strategies for a well-established major donor program. This experienced professional will build on CBN’s current momentum to identify and steward relationships with our generous and faithful supporters, meet ambitious goals, and guide a long-term vision for the overall division. The Director will work closely with senior leadership to identify and create impactful and engaging campaigns for furthering The Gospel and communicate those campaigns to potential donors.
With our already-healthy group of major donors, data/analytics capacity and communications programs in place, we are looking for innovative development work to enhance CBN’s donor power and impact. The ideal person for this role will be a creative leader and development professional with an entrepreneurial streak, an ability to chart development strategy in close consultation with organizational principals and leverage their significant fundraising experience.
